The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a rash of larcenies from vehicles and two reported auto thefts from the Ashburn Village area and is reminding residents to lock vehicles and remove valuable items. 
 
During the overnight hours between November 10 and November 11, vehicles were targeted on Cardiff Court, Kings Arm Square, Paw Paw Court, Apollo Terrace, Luplume Place, Andreas Court, Cheltenham Circle, Granite Mountain Terrace, Rock Bar Terrace, and Isherwood Terrace.
 
Items taken included wallets, camera equipment and other electronics, jewelry, money and other items. One victim reported credit cards taken from their wallet were used in Maryland. 

Further reports were received of a 2009 Toyota Corolla and a 2013 Toyota Sienna that were stolen from the area of Kings Arm Square. The Corolla was recovered on Clappertown Drive shortly after the report was made. The Sienna was located around 2:30PM on November 11 in Washington, DC. In both of these cases the keys were left inside the vehicles. 
 
In all of the cases the vehicles were entered without any signs of force or physical damage and were believed to be left unlocked. Securing your property, to include closing garage doors to a residence, prevent the majority of these criminal incidents.
 
“To reduce your chances of becoming the victim of this crime of opportunity, we encourage residents to lock your vehicle and remove expensive items from plain view,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman. 
 
Residents are also reminded to park in well-lit areas or in a garage, to activate alarm systems or use anti-theft devices and immediately report any suspicious activity to the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office by calling the 24-hour non-emergency line at 703-777-1021. 
 
Anyone with any information regarding these cases are asked to contact Detective N. Campbell of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-737-8707 or by email.
